Duration 8:00pm - 9:00pm (ET)

Teachers are uniquely positioned to help students make sense of today’s most pressing problems and questions – to use literature as a force for good. Learn how to use the Folger Method to engage with paired texts in a way that gives students a sense of the SWEEP of literature and invites them to discover that authors across time, place, culture, gender, race, and religion have been asking the same BIG questions. Taken together, paired texts illuminate each other in powerful and surprising ways. Walk away with techniques you can use tomorrow and every day to help ALL students read with skill and confidence.
